Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) | [Mindy Kaling]

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)

Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?”

Publisher's Summary

Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?”

Perhaps you want to know what Mindy thinks makes a great best friend (someone who will fill your prescription in the middle of the night), or what makes a great guy (one who is aware of all elderly people in any room at any time and acts accordingly), or what is the perfect amount of fame (so famous you can never get convicted of murder in a court of law), or how to maintain a trim figure (you will not find that information in these pages). If so, you’ve come to the right book, mostly!

In Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, Mindy invites readers on a tour of her life and her unscientific observations on romance, friendship, and Hollywood, with several conveniently placed stopping points for you to run errands and make phone calls. Mindy Kaling really is just a Girl Next Door—not so much literally anywhere in the continental United States, but definitely if you live in India or Sri Lanka.

    "Fat? Really? So what am I?"
    Would you recommend Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yeah, sure. She's funny in an introspective self degradating kind of way.


    Any additional comments?

    She talks about how chubby she is. She's a size 8. SERIOUSLY MINDY?

    Story
    "Get ready to laugh!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) to be better than the print version?

    Yes. When the comedian can read their own book to you, I feel the experience is much more enhanced!


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's honest & funny. Comedians always embellish but it's fun to listen to the stories & struggles especially when it's done in a humorous fashion.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!


    Any additional comments?

    Listen to this book. It's great. I listened to it while driving a long distance & was so glad to have Mindy along for the ride to entertain me.

    I was on the fence about Mindy Kaling, but her bio was so charming she won me over!

    "Fun, Just Not That Funny"

    Mindy Kaling's brief biography was fun, but not that funny. I expected to laugh out loud or at least smile to myself. It was fine for a 5 hour listen, but if you want to be more entertained listen to Tina Fey or Penny Marshall's books.

    Story
    "love her!"
    What made the experience of listening to Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) the most enjoyable?

    It's funny and honest. I never watched The Office, but I am loving her show The Mindy Project. Very smart and funny actress/author.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)?

    For me, when she talks about her normal weight as opposed to the rest of Hollywood being size zero. To me, she looks great and I love she's not a stick figure and is confident.


    What does Mindy Kaling and Michael Schur bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I don't know.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    She had a photo shoot where she had to choose something to wear and all the clothes were insanely small girls with normal figures. She went into the bathroom stall and cried.


    Any additional comments?

    Love this girl and looking forward to her career!

    "Mindy, You get me!"
    Would you listen to Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) again? Why?

    I can't wait to get to work in the morning and start the book over again. While listening, I felt my thoughts and concerns were heard.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Her love of comedy. None of my friends and family understand my humor or where it comes from. And it is rare when I find someone who enjoys the same movies I do. In fact, it is so rare that I go years without meeting these people. When it does happen, it gives me enough hope that I come alive.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Her list of top comedic moments that mainly consisted of Will Farrell.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed, I felt happy, I felt understood.

    "Can We Be Friends?"
    What did you love best about Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)?

    Mindy, yes we're on a first name basis now, has an effortless story-telling ability. I felt that her relaxed, funny and biographical prose made it easy to really get to know her. She has a way of allowing the listener to feel a part of her narrative, mostly because you can relate to her so easily. It was such a fun listen and I certainly laughed alone in my car a lot. Great!


    Which character – as performed by Mindy Kaling and Michael Schur – was your favorite?

    Mindy as herself... throughout the whole book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was listening to the book around the time of the Office finale so hearing about her journey working with the writers and actors was really great. I think it tied everything together for me so well.


    Any additional comments?

    For the twenty-something - thirty-something girl, meet your new friend Mindy.

    What did you like best about this story?

    Hearing about Mindy's childhood and her early career.


    Have you listened to any of Mindy Kaling and Michael Schur ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I haven't listened to any of her other performances, but I have to say that I love her voice. It's very friendly, happy and so distinctive that I can still hear her narration, even after finishing the book.
